Tsunoshima Ohama Campground

Spend the night at an extraordinary beach

By Tristan Scholze    - 1 min read

With a white sandy beach, clear blue water, a lighthouse, a simple and colorful “church,” seaside grasses with wildflowers, and adjacent rocky cliffs, this campground is one of my favorites in Japan. There's also a nature center. You can pitch a tent here for about 2,000 yen or rent a bungalow during the season (083-786-0477). Tsunoshima is most peaceful between sunset and early morning when the daytime crowds are gone and the sound of the waves prevails.

I'm also known as Faer Out. I love learning about people and nature. I've traveled around the world and throughout Japan, and I hope to continue seeing and experiencing the wonder of this planet as long as I live.Based in Japan for nearly two decades, I'm the Regional Partner here for Fukuoka and Saga Prefectures. In addition to my work at JapanTravel, I have a language school called Rainbow Bridges English Academy in Fukuoka and am very interested in teaching, languages, communication, and photography, among other things. Recently, I've been a guest host on NHK World's J-Trip Plan for Caving Adventures in Western Japan as well as Exploration for Black Gold.I love heading downtown to meet up with friends for a night out as well as being able to hop on my motorcycle and be riding through forest-covered mountains or to sandy beaches in 20 minutes. This area is very photogenic and even after years of exploration, there are still plenty of places to discover each weekend! My photographs are available for purchase on iStock, Shutterstock, and Dreamstime or by contacting me.Please contact me if you have any questions about travel in Japan. I'd also be grateful for any follows on social media!
